Marc Querol has joined The 39 Club at the recently held July committee meeting. Marc hails from Barcelona and runs the successful Double H agency representing brands including Eden Park, Carlos Cordoba, Garcia, S4 Jackets, Lavant, St James and Sunwill.

Marc says "When I started my adventure inside the UK fashion sector in 2014, I have been always trying to develop myself and improve each area of it. However, the achievement of being part of such a historical Menswear Agents Club, with all the iconic and unique people that have been part of it, is far away from what I ever thought I could reach. It is an honor to become the latest and one of the youngest. 

Being part of The 39 Club means a lot, it means that you are part of a family, part of a team, part of human people that have a huge knowledge of menswear fashion that I will be never closer in my life.

Definitely, it is like having a second family that you can be calling, talking, and enjoying, I hope for many years. But most of all, after just one meeting the human behavior that I discovered in each of the members I met. This is for me the most important thing."

 The 39 Club warmly welcomes Marc to the fold.

Honorary Secretary takes an amble....

Peter Boyd our talented wordsmith and valued  Honorary Secretary has supported the Prostate Cancer charity completing an amble in aid of this amazing cause during March.

The daily target was for each person taking part to walk 11,000 steps each day in March to raise funds for Prostate Cancer. In total there were 7190 people taking part and between them, just under £1.8 million was donated. For Peter personally, he raised £1600 and walked a total of 180 miles or 407,000 steps. Peter wants to say a big thank you to Brian Winterbourne who joined him every Tuesday and on average walked between 8 and 10 miles, also thanks go to Mike Smith who joined Brian and Peter on the last day, March 31st, at Burghley Park near Stamford were they walked 12,200 steps.

Here is a picture of the three members on that last day.

What an excellent effort Hon Sec. we are extremely proud of this superb achievement. Well done!
